Review: Off Leash

Off Leash
Off Leash by Daniel Potter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s very difficult for me to give a 5 star review to a book. They must have all the things. In this case, I am very happy to do so. This book was just plain fun to read! Political intrigue, a who-dunit mystery, firework throwing squirrels, talking animals, telepathic bonds, werewolves, dragons…. like I said, this book has all the things! It’s a rousing Urban Fantasy that brings to mind a cross between Redwall & Harry Potter.

Thomas Khatt, a man without a lot going for him, suddenly finds his existence turned upside down when he witnesses the violent death of his next door neighbor. There’s much more to it than that as he wakes in his home to find he’s become a cougar. Not that kind, the kind with fur and a tail.

After that, he’s rudely submerged into the world beyond the Veil, where magic exists and magi turn animals like him into their personal servants to help them with their spells.

It’s a rousing action story told in a world within our own, but hidden by mystic forces so that we mundanes can’t see it. The characters are outstandingly created. The details describing the transition of Thomas’ body and mind from man to cougar is just amazing! The plot is never dull for even a split-second. I am looking forward to the next installment!

I give this debut novel from Daniel Potter five stars, and call it a Khatagorically Stupendous Read!

PS – The few pieces of artwork found in the e-book are ASTOUNDING!
